At our site we maintain the highest standards of respect for your privacy as you view our pages and/or participate in our games and other activities. We'll briefly discuss below what you can expect from us as you use our site either as an anonymous user or after registering for some of our password-protected services.
When you visit our pages, you are completely anonymous unless you explicitly volunteer information in the process of registering for our games and services. But, as with most web sites, we do collect some rudimentary statistical information to help us assess our levels of site traffic. This anonymous numerical information does not identify you to us in any relevant way, nor will we ever try to draw any connections. It is used strictly for analyzing levels of site traffic, number of visitors, etc. This is all very standard stuff. We use the well known Apache web server software and employ its standard logging facilities. And we use Webalizer to crunch the output of the Apache standard logging.
The raw logging information will not be shared with anyone else. We may however sometimes disclose high level information about our levels of site traffic to selected partners. This would include only broad strokes information such as number of total visitors per month, number of pages viewed, etc.
We do use some "cookies" when you visit our site. These are used to maintain session state so that we can provide advanced game features and save you having to login every time you visit the site. If you turn off cookies in your browser you may find that some of our pages behave oddly or do not work at all.
We use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit our Website. These companies may use information (not including your name, address email address or telephone number) about your visits to this and other Web sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices about not having this information used by these companies, click here.
We provide many links to other sites on our pages. We of course make no claims of responsibility as to the privacy policies of these various linked sites.
We provide a number of services where you may voluntarily provide information about yourself in the course of registering for the particular service. We will not share this information with anyone else. We will use it only within the expected realm of the particular service. We will not display this information on the site unless it is made clear that you are volunteering to have such information displayed on the site.
In particular, we will be very judicious in our use of any email addresses you provide to us. In all places that you may enter an email address, it is made clear what that address will be used for. We will never "spam" you, nor provide your address to other parties. Ever.
A few of our services require further clarification:
For any service we provide, we also provide a convenient way for you to "opt out" or quit using that service. If we send you email associated with a particular service, we always provide information as to how you can cease receiving such email in the future. On NetCELL you can always immediately remove your email address by using the Options button. If your NetCELL game name remains unused for a period of approximately six months, you information will automatically be removed.
